    If you have a Mac (which I presume you do because you're on a Mac forum), you probably already have a webcam. It will work with Skype just fine.

    Yes...but the OP wants to get a webcam for their brother who may or may not have a Macintosh...and if the brother does have a Macintosh...it could be an older Mac (before built-in webcams)...or they might be lucky enough to have a Mac Pro.

    Just some possibilities the OP didn't tell us,

    - Nick
    - Too many "beachballs", read this: Beachballs
    - Computer seems slower than it used to? Read this for some slow computer tips: Speedup
    - Almost full hard drive? Some solutions. Out of Space
